Hmmm. Google have made some mighty strange choices on there. Prominent amongst which are: no New York, Cairo, Berlin or Washington, preferring Pretoria to Johannesburg, no Vancouver, nothing at all in Brazil or most of North Africa (Algiers, Addis Ababa, Khartoum, Tunis) or Scandinavia but they did manage Hanga Roa and Adamstown. But not Kiev, Baghdad, Tehran, Karachi, Dhaka, Colombo or Singapore. I reckon they were having an off-day when they designed that.

Some of it has to do with where the label of the country/sub-national entity sits. For instance, Halifax is the largest city in Nova Scotia, but since it's directly in the middle of the province, it's covered by the name of the province and you have to zoom in loads just to see it.

Great Concept! This might just be me, but when i go to a zoom level of 4, I also see Vienna, Cali, Berlin, Sao Paulo, and Philadelphia.

The cities shown seem to change depending on where you are located. Some people I've asked have had up to 3 Brazilian cities visible, while others have also had the same cities as me. I'm not sure why.

Yes this is definitely different depending on your default location. For me I can see Sao Paulo, Salvador, Dar es Salaam etc.
